It’s funny how there seems to be a direct correlation between my travel schedule, and my ability to keep plants alive.
But since my schedule is slowing down, this weekend I took the plunge and started asking around where I could find rosemary topiaries. Turns out, Williams Sonoma carries them this time of year, but the clerk said that they source theirs from Lowe’s or Whole Foods.
So I went directly to Lowe’s and of course, I got nothin’. But what I DID find was this pretty little lemon tree topiary. The fragrance was wonderful, it had a pretty light green color, and it was perfect for my windowsill above my kitchen sink—the highest traffic location in my house — a place where we can enjoy it each trip we make to brew a fresh cup of coffee.
For some reason, choosing my “partridge” was the hardest part of this endeavor. Another lady and I were in a friendly competition for choosing the perfect bird. She was a bird watcher so she offered her two cents on each and every bird I picked up…
In the end, I went for the loose interpretation of a partridge, one covered in glitter.
And now…this fragrant accent resides on my kitchen windowsill where we can enjoy it all season long.
One more look in the morning light.
